LEBANON, Tenn. – Cumberland’s Ashley Kambeitz earned Mid-South Conference Defensive Player of the Week honors on Monday after posting a shutout in one match and allowing one goal in a victory over fifth-ranked Southeastern University, as announced by the league office.

The Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, native made one save and faced five total shots in a win against Bethel University on Wednesday, the team’s fourth shutout in as many matches this season. The senior goalkeeper then recorded 10 saves in CU’s 2-1 triumph over Southeastern.
